Travelled out to my parents’ for Mother’s Day weekend and my dad had a few early birthday gifts waiting for me!
I absolutely can’t wait to try out the Garmin Forerunner — I’ve been using the RunKeeper app on my phone for the last year and a half, and while it does its job very well, I’ve experienced a number of crashes, poor tracking, and other glitches that have made me desire something a bit more reliable. Plus, having the phone flop around in my SPI belt during races was unpleasant.
The books come at a perfect time too, since I just finished reading Liz Robbins’ “A Race Like No Other” earlier today (which I’ll write a post/review of tomorrow). Every day I realize more and more how little I actually know about running, so these two books should help to remedy some of that.
